tina said lyrics – those darlins

tina said that it’s a stage but i don’t know
lookin’ at her lyin’ with her face down in the floor
her arms are limp and her legs are useless
a constant battle that she always losin’
nothin’ but the hair standin’ up on her head
cursin’ her life in between each breath
seems to me that it’s a permanent way
but tina said tina said it’s just a stage

sittin’ in her castle on her giant throne
nose is turnin’ blue cause her hearts so cold
iced ‘em out to make herself feel better
still won’t admit that she was wrong about the weather
no fire hot enough to warm her nose
she’s all alone with her frost bitten toes
seems to me that it’s a permanent way
but tina said tina said it’s just a stage
but tina said tina said it’s just a stage

he’s been silent for a couple of years
walked into a trap but he she’d no tears
been workin’ hard oh according to tina
they slapped him in the face with a court subpoena
only solid shelter they ever had
this is how they thank him for breaking his back
policeman says that he caused all this pain
but tina said tina said it’s just a stage
but tina said tina said it’s just a stage

she still believes in all those lies that she told
in her head she’s grown up so old
just because she broke ‘em down on judgement day
she thinks that she can justify the mess that she made
immaturity is making her blind
she don’t know the reason she can’t sleep at night
seems to me that it’s a permanent way
but tina said tina said it’s just a stage
oh tina said tina said it’s just a stage
